GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Three Palestinians were injured with Israeli live ammunition and rubber-coated steel bullets, while dozens of others suffered from tear-gas inhalation, on Monday, during the 17th naval march setting off from the Gaza seaport in attempt to break the nearly 12-year Israeli siege.

According to local sources, Israeli forces fired tear-gas bombs towards large Palestinian crowds gathered at the northern borders of the besieged Gaza Strip, while the Israeli navy opened fire at Gaza boats attempting to break the siege.

Sources added that hundreds of Palestinians arrived to the northern border to participate in the 17th naval march.

A Ma'an reporter confirmed that three Palestinians were shot and injured by Israeli forces, while others suffered from tear-gas inhalation.

The medical condition of the three injured remained unknown.

The National Committee for Breaking the Siege, which organized the naval march, reiterated that the naval marches would continue until the Israeli siege over Gaza is lifted.

The committee called on the United Nations, the European Union, and fellow Arab countries to immediately intervene and carry out their legal responsibilities to force Israel to end the occupation and break the siege.
